Ronnie Wood Band is at Bluesfest 2013
THE Ronnie Wood Band will close BluesFest 2013 in a huge grand finale on Friday, November 1.
Natalie Cole is part of a special co-headline show with Gregory Porter. Van Morrison and Mick Hucknall get together for an All Star Tribute to blues and soul legend Bobby Bland.
Other additions include Steve Craddock, Big Boy Bloater and Huddled Masses for a celebration of Blues and everything it has inspired. Fresh from touring with The Rolling Stones, Ronnie and his band perform a special tribute to one of the most influential bluesmen of all time – Jimmy Reed.
Ronnie will lend his boisterous riffmanship and incisive vocals to some of his favourite Jimmy Reed tracks in an incredible grand finale to BluesFest.
Ronnie said: “Jimmy Reed was one of the premier influences on The Rolling Stones and all the bands that love American Blues from that era until the present day.
It is my honour to have the opportunity to celebrate his life and legacy with this tribute.” BluesFest is at London’s Royal Albert Hall, October 29 to November1.
